Silence erupts like a cacophony of sound.

Silence erupts like a cacophony of sound. You ask, how can that be? Silence is silence, isn’t it?

Stop and listen again, is it really silence. Not for me. When I am in silence I hear so much more than I do with my physical ears.

The voices of my “shoulds” fall away. The voice I still hear that sounds like my mother criticizing, helping, sharing “for my own good” recedes, quiets and finally is silent. The voice of my boss, the voices of the news telling me all that I should be afraid of or angry about, the commercials urging me always to buy more and more so that I will be safe, beautiful, desirable, stylish and smart goes into the hush. I hear only that small quiet voice whispering, “All is well. Love is. I am.” I’m laughing now, I/she/we are singing Neil Diamonds’ song “I Am I Said” and the words touch me deeply.
